DP is a baseball acronym for double play, which is a play where two outs are recorded. It is similar to the putout term, which is when one out is recorded and the triple play term, which is when three outs are recorded.
The term is often used in baseball and softball to refer to a grounder or line drive fielded by an infielder, who throws it to a teammate standing on a base for a force-out, who then relays the throw to another teammate standing on a base for the second force out. There are a variety of double plays that can happen in baseball and softball, such as when a player is thrown out trying to advance to the next base after the fielder catches the ball, or when a hitter strikes out and a runner is thrown out while stealing a base.
